Independent horror game publisher and production company, DreadXP, just released The Mortuary Assistant on PC today. This game, developed by the one-man team at DarkStone Digital, places you in the shoes of Rebecca Owens, a new Mortuary Sciences grad that starts an apprenticeship at RiverFields Mortuary. Unfortunately, the dead don't always like to stay dead.

Players will have to contend with some demonic forces, various creep puzzles, multiple different endings, and a fair amount of realistic mortician tasks.

Apparently, this game features a system where each playthrough will be different from the prior one. There are different demons, bodies, and scares.

The Mortuary Assistant is out on Steam and Itch.io for $24.99 (USD). There is a launch week discount of 10% off.

The scares in The Mortuary Assistant aren’t limited to the supernatural, as the game features authentic tasks practiced by real-life morticians — this include making incisions on the dead, draining corpses of residual blood, retrieving bodies from cold storage, and conducting embalmings. The first person perspective puts you right into the macabre medical action, which only ramps up the tension as the bodies being worked on start to wander.

The Mortuary Assistant Key Features:
  • Keep your eye on the (em)bal(mings): Perform various jobs around the mortuary including embalmings, body tagging and general upkeep. But watch out for disappearing bodies. They’re the worst!
  • Creepy But Make it Authentic: The Mortuary Assistant features authentic mortician tasks that are fun for all! Who knew that retrieving bodies, making incisions, and draining blood could be so much fun?
  • Get Your Daily Exorcize: Some pesky bodies just won’t stay dead, and you’ll have to hit them with a standard exorcism. A word of warning, the learning curve to exorcisms are a real killer.
  • Collect them all!: The RiverFields Mortuary is chalk full of useful items that will make your job more pleasant. From matches and scalpels, to PCs with Windows 95 and demonic artifacts, they’ll help cure your boredom and maybe even keep you alive.
